    • Catullus 80
      Quid dicam, Gelli, quare rosea ista labella
      hiberna fiant candidiora nive,
      mane domo cum exis et cum te octava quiete
      e molli longo suscitat hora die?
      nescio quid certest: an vere fama susurrat
      grandia te medii tenta vorare viri?
      sic certest: clamant Victoris rupta miselli
      ilia, et emulso labra notata sero
      What do you say, O Gellius, to why those rosy lips of yours
      become white as winter snow,
      in the morning when you go out of your house and when the eighth hour wakes you
      out of a nap from a long day?
      I do not know what is certain: can the rumor be true
      that you swallow the large thing men have in the middle?
      It must be so: They proclaim that poor Victor's member has burst,
      and the milky fluid is inscribed on your lips
